Saviour (Barnabas)

A decree went out from Caesar Let the people be numbered Each in the town of his birth Let the people obey A young couple came To the city of David She gave birth to the Son of the Lord In a manger He lay Jesus of Nazareth God's only Son He gave his life as our Saviour Our lives have only begun The Son of God; the Son of man Christ Messiah Miracles flowed from His hands But His message was love He chose twelve from thousands To witness His teaching For He knew that He soon must return To His Father above Thirty pieces of silver And Judas betrayed Him They crcuified Christ on a cross Where everybody could see He died to pay for our sin And our salvation is free know "Eternal life is God's gift to the world If you believe in Me
